I am a sideline screamer.
I stand at the sidelines of Ben’s soccer games and yell.
NEVER at the referee (I mutter my disdain for the ref quietly under my breath).
I just yell…..at the game, at the players, at my son, at whatever is going on out on the field.
I just offer my very loud (and unsolicited) advice on how to play the game.
From the sidelines.
But here’s the kicker (get it? soccer……kicker)
I am only like that with soccer.
Ben also plays basketball and baseball and I am perfectly capable of quietly watching those games from the sidelines and cheering when appropriate.
Not with soccer. I just get so into the game.
I LOVE the game.
I just recently gave up playing on a team myself.
And this year his team has really advanced the level of play. They are playing in the top division in their age bracket and are doing so well!
Besides I LOVE the game.
So that brings me to the carrots and tootsie pops.
I take little bags of carrots and tootsie pops to the games to help keep my mouth busy so that I don’t embarrass or make a spectacle of myself.
Yes, I spend the whole game munching and crunching and licking and sucking in order to keep myself kind of quiet. And I pace. Alot.
That makes Lisa the winner. Except she already knew the answer to the question because she paces and munches on my carrots right along side me while we watch our boys play together.
I just never thought she would EVER leave me a comment on my blog. EVER. (Actually I didn’t even know she reads my blog without my prompting.)
So Lisa, want to know your prize?
It’s a season supply of baby carrots and tootsie pops!
